Watch your mouth
Oh, oh, oh
Because your speech is slurred enough
That you just might swallow your tongue
I'm sure you'd want, want to give up the ghost
With just a little more poise then that
Or was it God who chokes in these situations
Running late oh no he called in
Or was it God who chokes in these situations
Running late oh no he called in

The hospice is
A relaxing weekend getaway where your a cut above all the rest
Sick and sad patients
On first name basis
With all the top physicians

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should
Take it a day at a time

That's when you st-st-stutter
Something profound
To the support on the line
And with the way you've been talking
Every word gets you a step closer to hell
That's when you st-st-stutter
Something profound
To the support on the line
And with the way you've been talking
Every word gets you a step closer to hell

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should
Take it a day at a time
(X2)

I am
Alone in this bed, house, and head
She never fixes that
But at least she
I am
Alone in this bedroom
She never fixes this
But at least she
I am all alone in this bed
O-o
She never fixes this
But at least she...

Prescribed pills
To offset the shakes
To offset the pills
You know you should
Take it a day at a time
(X2)

The hospice is
A relaxing weekend getaway where you're a cut above all the rest
Sick and sad patients
On first name basis
With all the top physicians

    I think the "she" isn't actually referring to a girlfriend or mother or woman of somesort
    I think it's referring to the alcohol itself.
    How it doesn't fix anything, but it does take it away for a while
    I dunno, just my thought.

    hospice is where people go to die when they have cancer or some other terminal illness and don't want to continue with treatment to prolong their lives. you can't go into hospice for an addiction... the shakes and pills could easily be someone coming off of chemo... i just really don't see "alcoholic" in this song. seems like a stretch.

    Ryan dedicated this song to his dad,
    understand these lyrics deeper,
    The hospice is
    A relaxing weekend getaway where you're a cut above all the rest
    Sick and sad patients
    On first name basis
    With all the top physicians
    his dad died bcoz of lung cancer

    I know that the guitarist has an alcoholic father. It may have something to do with that. He's gotten in such poor condition that he's got to be in a hospice. I don't really know. Just a good guess.
